Tweetable Quotes:

“Every day I get up, I try to work out. That's the goal. When I get up, I’m like ‘I'm going to work, you have to get up and go to work.’ So that's what I trained the agents to do, and the agents that show up and do the work, they'll make a living.” - Carrie J. Little

“Figure out the best house to sell in the community, figure out what the turnover rate is in no specific order, figure out if you're in a seller's market, and figure out the inventory. When you understand that data, you will not only help, you'll actually work smarter.” - Carrie J. Little
